“Fantastic experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

It has been a wonderful experience to stay at this amazing place and spend our Honeymoon here! Once we landed at the island, we were impressed by the beauty of its nature, magic turquoise water, shiny wite sand. We booked a Junior Suite Beach Front, but as they were all booked, we got Villa and were very happy :)
The resort is said to be Italian one, so we expected to have italian cuisine mostly. However it was a mix of cuisines, and a very good mix, I shall say. The selection was great and we liked the variety of fish and vegetables.
The hotel area is very clean, the roomes are cleaned twice a day. We were surprised that the majority of the hotel visitors wear no footwear all the time, we tried and were surprised our feet were clean! What a fantastic feeling!
The island is big enough, so there is space for walking, running, sport activities. One shore of the island is with corals, but another side of the island is amazing!
The staff is very hispitable, quick and helpfull. Everyone is smiling and being friendly all the time.
I would highly recommend this hotel, as it is a complete fairytale! I would definitely return!

I was happy to spend two weeks in this wonderful place.

The resort is hosted by one of the biggest Maldivian islands which is a great advantage. Size matters! One might think he or she can easily get lost, but in fact, it’s okay after a day. Even for “Give me a map!” people like myself. It’s vast enough to afford enjoying bicycle riding. It’s just the gentle breeze in your face, breathtaking surroundings that you pass by, and the spirit of freedom, adventure, and HAPPINESS in the air. What a feeling!

The views are really stunning: turquoise water, white sand, green vegetation, colorful underwater creatures... The light was gorgeous and so were the colors in the sunset. Truly inspiring! Not to mention the starlit sky in the night... Colors of the sky and water are so vibrant; they are not just eye-pleasing, they penetrate you, they make you feel colorful, leaving you serene, peaceful, rejuvenated...

Also, my holiday turned to be so fantastic thanks to the professional staff. I got a feeling they love what they do and it really matters. All the guys were always smiling and enthusiastic, proving great service for the guests.

The last but not least, a couple of words about the food and drinks over there. They leave nothing to be desired! It was a real journey through a thousand flavors of Italian and international cuisine. So I simply indulged myself in heavenly tasting goodness.

I’ve fallen in love with Palm Beach.

Highly recommended.

Palm beach just incredible excellent! Everything was great. Amazing location: the island is very tropical paradise, big enough to walk, relax and feel alone. The sandy point is amazing. The beach is wonderful, both sunset and dawn side: the first one perfect to swim and sunburn, the second to do snorkeling! The restaurants are very very good, italian kitchen and italain recipes as I was in Italy. The bedroom was great, totally wood interior and exterior finished, the open bath was marvellous. A island perfect as a romantic gateway or just a relaxing holiday. In my opinion also the reef was good. Only one disappointment: the bicycles were in very bad conditions...I suggest to improve them!

We had just come back from Palm Beach. It was a great. amazing experience. Once we landed we were stuned with the beauty of the place, crystal clear water, shiny white sand. you just cant describe it in words , I always laughed at some advertisement calling them photosphed but this was just much better than photoshoped beaches on adverts. The rooms were very clean, although you could see that some parts of the room looked bit used, although that was not a problem at all . Cleaning was done twice a day which was great becouse we were travelling with small children. The food was very good, fresh and tasty, we were very satisfied with the staff at the restaurant aswell. Overall the Island is very clean and well organized, its big aswell and you can call for a driver who will take you with a golf cart anywhere you want ( this was VERY helpfull for us, we did not have to walk with children all the way, just called the driver that showed up in a min or two). You could complain that this is an Italian colony however we did not feel it this way, the staff spoke very good English and we enjoyed our vacation immensly. This was our second visit to Maldives. Traveled from London, UK.

We were totally satisfied with accommodation, food, services, beach, sea.......
The occupancy was probably low, because the island wasnť crowded, we were
alone on the beach and we saw more people just during the meal.
I would take the sunset side bungalow again next time. The colour of
the see on this side is really amazing......
Major part of guests were Italians, then Germans and the remaining couple
% other nationalities.
We´ve booked our trip by Alltours and the services were OK.
I fully recomend this island.

PS: Just little negative thing - the main restaurant or the coffe shop during the meals could be nonsmoking.

This resort has probably one the most beautiful beaches of Maldives. It is a "big" island if compared to other resorts and maybe a bit too crowded and far from the Male airport. Rooms are very large and comfortable with all the amenities you may need. The food is simply fantastic from breakfast to dinner! Despite a stunning beach, the reef is not very close but don't worry, the resort will bring you snorkeling twice a day by a dhony service.
Perfect staff service and good Diving center. Perfect for families.
